Twenty-four of the thirty-six states in the country have reportedly passed the Not Too Young to Run bill.

The non-profit pushing for the passage of the bill, YIAGA Africa, revealed the news on their Instagram.

The passage of the bill is still pending in 11 states, and has been rejected in Taraba State.

States where the bill has been passed include Borno, Kaduna, Ogun, Akwa Ibom, Delta, Kwara, Plateau, and Katsina.

Passage of the bill in 24 states – two-thirds of the states in the country – means that the next stage is for the president to assent to the bill.

YIAGA Africa has consistently pushed for the passage of the bill, meeting with lawmakers in several states including Bauchi, Kano, Ekiti, Enugu, Rivers, and Sokoto.
